Ladybugs are valued because they eat aphids and scale insects, pests in gardens and orchards. After mating in the spring or early summer, the females lay their eggs close to an aphid colony. When the larvae hatch, they have food close by. Adult ladybugs hunt insect prey too. They bite the prey they catch to kill it. Dragonflies are winged hunters that catch insect prey in the air.

Stick in a twig for the mantis to climb on. Once the mantis is inside the container, cover the top with clear wrap taped at the edges. Use a sharp pencil to poke a few airholes. Now go hunting for other insects, such as large flies. An adult mantis is likely to eat at least two large flies a day. And mantises will only eat live prey. You’ll have to lift the cover and slip these inside before resealing. Watch the mantis for a day or two. Check out how it hunts. See how it eats. Then return the praying mantis to where you found it.

At this stage, the larva’s body structure and systems are completely changed into its adult form. rectum: part of the digestive system where wastes collect before passing out of the body simple eyes: eyes only able to sense light from dark sperm: male reproductive cell spermatheca (spur-muh-THEE-kuh): sac in female insects that stores sperm after mating spiracles (SPIR-i-kehlz): holes down the sides of the thorax and abdomen. They let air into and out of the body for breathing. thorax: the body part between the head and the abdomen 43 DIGGING DEEPER To keep on investigating praying mantises, explore these books and online sites.
